SCIENCE: Chesapeake Bay, USA, Pesticide Database


The National Agricultural Library is pleased to announce availability of a scientific dataset via its AgNIC server:

Data Base of the Occurrence and Distribution of Pesticides in Chesapeake Bay

The data was collected and published by W. Edward Johnson, an Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientist. Collaborating with Dr. Johnson, NAL has taken his dataset, in tab-delimited format, and created an HTML version suitable for presentation on the Web. We hoped that this product will serve as an example of how libraries and scientists can cooperatively deliver such information in an electronic environment.

This Web implementation relies heavily on HTML tables and viewing it requires a table-capable browser (e.g., Netscape 1.2+, MSIE, Mosaic 2.0+). Users may access the data through any of four indexes: Bibliographic Citation; Location; Pesticide Name; or Species Name. Neither the geographic nor species indexes were not part of the original publication. These were extracted and generated specifically for this HTML version. Keyword search capability is also available.

Any comments, suggestions, and ideas are most welcome and should be directed to:
